The Bóbr river
The Bóbr River is the largest left tributary of the Oder. Its sources are located in the Czech Giant Mountains at an altitude of 780 meters above sea level in Bobrowy Stok. The total length of the river is 271,1 km, including its Polish part – 269,6 km. Due to the landform through which the river flows, it is considered by many as one of the most beautiful rivers in Poland.
Surroundings of the Bóbr River are a great summer destination. Beautiful, green areas, clean, unpolluted air, forest and mountain paths with numerous hiking trails, the sound of water and sandy beaches – what else do you need to be happy?
It is the area of protection of flora and non-forest ecosystems of the park and its buffer zone, almost entirely (98%) located in the basin of the Bóbr River. It aims to protect the historical, cultural and natural values that are attractive for the development of tourism and recreation. Wleń Municipality is the central part of the Bóbr Valley Landscape Park.
It aims to protect valuable species of plants and cultural monuments. Paths around the nature reserve lead among very interesting hornbeam forests. During the journey you can observe protected plants like: Wild Garlic, Turk’s Cap Lily, Goatsbeard, Cotoneaster niger, Berberis, Neottia and Ivy.
